Kids of all ages will enjoy building these LEGO® projects inspired by the summer Olympic games! Show them these ideas to get them started, and then see what other events they can build.
It would also be great to build LEGO® Olympic events together – a fun family night idea!
Project #1: Olympic Rings
Build the rings flat on a base plate, or build them free standing with larger bricks. The rings (and flags – see below) would also be fun to use as decorations for an Olympics watching party.
Project #2: The Olympic Torch
Our boxer figure (we don’t have many athletes!) is lighting the torch! The hand held torch is a telescope brick, then two 1 x 1 round plates (flat bricks), then a disk thing. The fire is just stuck into the disk.
Project #3: Diving
We built this diving pool with a bunch of 2 x 4 light blue plates (flat bricks). I found this color at our local LEGO® store.
Project #4: Gymnastics
We built a balance beam, pommel horse, and uneven bars. This is my favorite project!
Here are the pieces we used to build the pommel horse:
Aidan built the uneven bars with Technic rods and connectors.
And the balance beam is obviously quite simple.
Project #5: Flags
We only built the US flag, but it would be so awesome to build flags from countries around the world! Check out these LEGO flags for more inspiration!
What will your kids come up with? Feel free to share photos of your kids’ LEGO® Olympic creations on the Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls Facebook page!
